The seat will not stay back

My son's 99 reg cab seat will not latch in the back position. Any suggestions?
It was working fine yesterday. Thanks for the help.

Spilt bench?
Buckets?

That makes it easier.
You have two different mechanisms to compare.
I assume the drivers side does not latch.
Operate the passenger side and note any difference.

Is the hook on the seatback not moving when you move the lever?

I had this happen in my 01 reg. Cab. Look at the assembly and there is a piece that you need to slam back down. I took a flat head screw driver and hit it with a hammer and it went back down. Look at the pass. side and you can tell what piece to hit.

On my truck, there's a recline lever, and then another lever on the back of the seat to flip it forward. If you tip the seat forward with the back lever and then lift up the recline lever it spring all the way forward and won't latch again. The only way to reset the seat is to slide it all the way forward and then push the seat back all the way reclined. This was enough to reset it in my truck. Just figured I'd chime in since it took me like 2 hours to figure this out

OK, I called my son and told him to try slamming the piece back down and it worked. Thanks for the help everyone.

I only got two tools in my toolbox.
A hammer and a big hammer.

Seat lever!

Animal, can't thank you enough! I thought I was looking at a long cold day in the driveway trying to get that thing to grab when I read your post! Took two seconds. Great help!
